Crocodile Attack 3
Crocodile Attack 3

That morning was extremely lucky... we saw three different crossings, two of them fairly large - several hundred animals. We saw as well at least three different croc attacks. This is another one. Note that the jaws of this Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) are so huge that they can almost completely encircle the body of the Wildebeest, which is just slightly smaller than a horse.

Esa mañana fue excelente, vimos tres cruces, dos de ellos bastante grandes, de varios cientos de animales. Presenciamos también tres ataques de cocodrilo. En esta imagen, se ve como las fauces del enorme Cocodrilo del Nilo (Crocodylis niloticus) son tan enormes que casi rodean por completo el cuerpo del ñu, que es ligeramente más pequeño que un caballo.
